Incident and Story

THE WOMEN'S MISSIONARY SOCIETY 

of the 
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH !N CANADA 



INTRODUCTORY NOTE 
Each year, along with the statistical 
reports from oar various fields of labor, 
our missionaries send us valuable illus- 
trations of their work. These are often 
in story form too lengthy for publica- 
tion in our annual report This year, 
the different secretaries have gathered 
them together and they are issued 
under the foregoing heading for the use 
of Auxiliaries and Mission Bands. 
Through them the missionaries them- 
selves speak to us.

We are soiiietiiiifs siHkcil: What is the rt-al work of a deui'OiieMt It 
IB a question to whii li no very definite answer can be jriveii. The neareBt 
apiroat-h to it niav lie tound in the words of our Hnviour to His tiiHi-'iples, 
"i am among you as one that serveth." Her aervice may be very varied 
in character. By her loving ministrations it may he hers to soothe the sor- 
rowing, bring relief to the distressed, liojie to the disn raged and joy to 
the grief stricken. We muy be able to have a better understanding of 
her work by liBtening to some of the incidents of lier daily life, such as the 
following: "Yesterday was Sunday. We had ns unual our mixed Bible 
clasB. The class is smiiHer because "several of the brave youths have gone 
to the front to fight the battles of their cuuntry. We miss them, but » 
letter from one gives inspiration to persevere, lie is about to get into the 
trenches and writes, 'I an! better prepavd to fa<'e the foe because of 
what I '"arned in your (Jible class, and f know the other boys feel the 
same.' To-day a request comes to visit a poor wiman, who has just re- 
ceived word that her husband has fallen in battle. The deaconess is glad 
of 'the request,' for it I'leans that the mourner expects her to be able to 
comfort, and gladly goes with her message of infinite love. During these 
dark days many such messages find their w«y to the deaconess.'' Another 
deaconess writes: "There is less poverty ihan two or three years ago, 
but war brings suffering of another kind. We meet with muny sorrowing 
wives and mothers of men at the front, anxiously awaiting news of their 
loved onas. It is a privilege to bring at least a small measure of comfort to 
these homes. One of our sad cases is that of a young woman made a widow 
through the war. she has three little children, and is a victim of in-

Thia Educational work hati now pn^setl the experinicntat ^ta^e and 
become an estiildiwhed fact, nnd it in imly liecause the W.M.S. it hampered 
by too amall an income that thin work ia not opened at many more centres. 
Until the fall of 11(16 there were Heparate homes at r-\ly two (seutrea, — 
V'egreville, wliere there were four homeM. and Teulon, where 'here was 
one. Of eourae there were children at other points, but tliey had to be 
looked after in the Mi>Hion IIoBpitals. In Sept., 1916, a home was opened 
at Ethtdbert, Man., and thirteen boys and jrirls were kept there. And 
itill the eall comes I.t more homea. Our church in seized of the fact that 
this educational wnr!i amon^r the youn^ is one of tlie most imj-ortant works 
of the church today, and so the Board of Home Missions i-iimea to the 
W.M.8., aakinjr for more honies. The i"ember»i of the General (?ouaril of 
the W.M.H. ask that thin branch of the work be pushed. Hut best of nil, 
the people for whom these homes were established, are realizing the great 
benefit to their children^ and are asking iiermisaion to send their boya 
nnd girls in ever increasing numbers, and asking, too. that maay more of 
these homes should be opened. They are realii'ing, too, their responai- 
bilitiea to the homes in giving what they can to the support of their 
young people while in the home. Last year the homes we have, could 
not begin to a<'commodate those who applied for admiasion, and many 
applicants had to be refused. This was regrettable, lliiwever, we are glad 
to be able to say that in September of this year two new homes are to be 
opened, one for boys at Vermilion, and one for girls at Ethelbert. The 
Ethelbert Home ii to be begun with eight girls, bnt in IfllS, we trust, this

afraid to make any piiblie eonfeHsion for fear of the perseeution thev would

in their own homes, one longs by eonversation. and often in n mr)re praeti<al 
way. to show them soinethind of the wotMlerfiil love of Christ. It is a 
great ,joy when they allow the niissionnry to read Cod "s Word and to 
pray with them, hut a still greater joy when they request it. Mibles, 
TeatnmentH and other literature nre given to those who will take them. Thi'r-^ 
are people who lannot go to the Mission beeaiise of family ties, great distanee 
or persecution. Of this number some love and read Hod's Wonl. and pray 
in the name of .lesus, and their faith is very beautiful, but thev need eourage 
to he out and out for Christ. While visiting a patient in the hospital the word, 
"in season," is often spoken to other .Tewf. in the same ward.

but the poor little nurse wa« almost frozen atifT. Hhp .■oulil not move and 
iBd to be (•nrncij into the home, where the foul air and heat almost over 
powered her. After ten Tiiinotes she was nl.le to move her flncers anil 
liradually her little body thawod .rat. It was an awful exiierienre but ns 
she BEKl afterwards, "It meant the saving of two lives— and the snarinir 
of a mother to seven other .hildren." 

In one of the reports our missionary was deplorin); the appearanee of 
tubereulMis in the foreign colonies, and told of the life and death of a 
.young Ruthenian girl, a daughter of one of our Hutlienian ministers wlio 
tell a victim to the dread disease. She was only ifteen years of age but 
her life was rich in Christian experience, and her influence will never be 
lost. She had a wonderful influence over her young associates, aii.l when 
her Mission Band. and. which was composed chiefly of foreign children belonging 
to one of our school hmnes, met, she led in the devotional exercises with a 
iliKnity and efflciency wliicli was quite remarkable in one so \ ouiig and 
would have done credit to one of longer experience and grcJiter oppor- 
tunities. Our medical missionary often vi«itc<l her during her long illness 
and testified to her sterling worth. He tonchingly told of licr vision of 
rhrist .just before slic ■•ciosse.l the bar." She put up her thin, wasted 
hands and sai.l to those about her, "Oh. there is Jesus; can't von see 
Himf" 

When the foreign palients come into the hosidtala, eapeciallv the 
women and children, they observe very closelv what our nurses are doing 
anil try to imitate the: . Kverything Qinailian is so strange to them When a 
nurse goes to visit a sick patient in one of their little mud homes she 
sometimes finds the house, which is often just one room, filled with friends 
of the patient— men smoking and women sitting around talking. She usuallv 
fries to persuade the friends to take the sick one to the hospital if she Is 
not too ill to be moved; and when the patient roaches the hospital where 
a clean bed and Christian service are awaiting her, she is forcibly struck 
by the contrast to the miserable unsanitary hovel which she has just left 
When convalescing they exhibit considerable curiositv cnncerning the 
domestic side of the institution. As an interpreter is required in all our 
hospitals she usually |.oints out to one of her own nationality the things 
which to her seem the most remarkable. Tt all tends to instruct, to uplift, 
to enlighten, and inspire them with loftier ideals. When we consider that 
thousands are treated annually it gives an idea to what extent such Chris- 
tian influence may be carried. It is, truly, a n,-»ion building ivoik, and 
patriotism of the very highest character. 

As no great good is ever accomplished withou. real sacrifice on the 
part of someone, neither is this hospital work carried on in the lonelv, 
isolated places on the frontier' without sacrificial heroism on the part iif 
our Christian nurse-. Many of them have heard the call to service over- 
seas, and more changes have taken jilace in our hospital stall during the 
past year than ever before, and filling these v;,cancies is a problem which 
our Board is called upon to face all too frequently. 

Seidinn, if ever, has our Church had such an opportunity present itself 
as that which has just come in connection with the work among the French- 
Canadians at Bonnyville, Alberta, and it is a great satisfaction to us, the 
women of the church, to know that our work was considered so important 
and helpful that our co-operation was sought bv the Vermilion Presbyterv 
to helji carry the true light to those Human Catholics in that isolated part 
of Alberta. Bonnyville is situated on the border line between Alberta and 
Saskatchewan, and is over one hundred miles from a railway and forty- 
five miles from a doctor. These peojde, some two hundred and fifty families, 
were sent out to settle that community from T'apineanville, Que., some eight 
years ago, by the Roman Catholic Church. After manv disappointments

The work at Birtlc B. S. has been satisfactory in all ilcpartincnts. The 
class room woric has been o£ a high order, and the parents o* the children 
express their satisfaction with the services of the teai-her. Religious instruc- 
tion forms part of the school work morning and afternoon. At the Summer 
Pair several prizes were won against the local Hcbools. 

The yield of farm anil garden was not so satisfactory this year, owing 
to weather conditions, but all in that vicinity fared alike. Cattle, horses, pigs 
and several kinds of vegetables were exhibited at the Fair, and prizes won to 
the amount of thirty-one dollars. 

The reports froui Portage la Prairie B. S. have been in everv way 
satisfaclciiy, although the second year of the war has brought its dilliVulties 
to our sihool. Four have enlisted, and our farm inatructor is in Frame. 

Wo have an enrollment of 84 pupils, and the discipline of the children 
throughout the year has beeu splendid. We try to give the work a religious 
atmosphere. The departments of domestic science, lauudrv, sewing, nursing, 
general lioiiaework and farming have been satisfactory. Tlii' class rooms have 
been well looked after, and the ehiWren have made good progress The 
kindergarten room has proven very suitable to Indian children. The two 
departments of gri'atest importance to the children in after life are agriculture 
and domestic science. The farm of 3li acres has produced 210 bus. of wheat; 
400 bus. ot barley, 400 bus. of oats, 350 bush, of potatoes, 30 tons of silage, 
and a good supply of vegetables for the use of the school. 

Seri-ices are held in the Sioux village, with an attendance of about .SO, 
and also on the Long Plains Hcscrve. 

At our File Hills B. 8. there has been veiy little sickness and not one 
death during the year. The Boy Scout movement has beeu started, and should 
prove interesting and helpfiij, esinciajly in character forming and teaching 
the boys self-rcliiiiui'. " 

The girls are taught housekeeping, and before leaving schooi they must 
be able to do the things they would be called upon to do in their own homes 
such as cookiug, butter making, laundry work, etc. They must also be able to 
cut and make their own clothes. The class room work of our Oli pupils has 
been most satisfactory. At the annual teachers' convention in Tlalcarres, our 
pupils carried off seven prizes out of ten entries— in writing, dra«ing. darning, 
knitting, composition, map work ami plasticine modelling. Fi\e of the senior 
pupils Here baptized, and one of them, a son of Chief Star Blanket, has 
enlisted and gone to the front. 

The farm labor has all been done by the boys who, with few exceptions, 
have been very faithful in the performance of their work. We have abundance 
of feed for our stock, and our root house was ailed with ditferent vegetables 
for school supply. 

A service for the older Indians is held on the reserve each Sunday, and 
has been well attended. The missionary also drives twelve miles to hold 
■service at the colony. The work on the colony is progressing steadily, and 
most of the farmers are comfortably well off. Many of our colony boys have 
ealiste<l, and the work on the farms is being carried on by the Indians at 
home. An active Bed Cross Society has contributed money and clothing for 
the work overseas. The loyalty of our graduates and Indians in general 
has been a great source of satisfaction to church and state. 

The work at Koiind l.ak.', B.S., has been greatly handicapped by lack 
of proper accommodation. A new school is badly needed, but, owing to war 
conditions, neither church nor state has the money required to erect new 
buildings. A great opportunity is awaiting some oiic of means— to make it 
possible to gather into our school the niaay children who are seeking admission. 
The Principal has spent M years in this corner of the Master's vineyard, and 
pleads earnestly for help at this juncture of the work. He writes that he

almost impossible to harvest them. Three elders were ordained -iimI few white 
men take their duties more serimisly. There were six a.lditions to the Com-

Tlic South Cliiiia MisHinii Wiis orij.'iiiaII>' known as the "Ma-'po" Mis- 
sion, as Miicao was the firat headquarters of tlie work. It is bc:iutifully

extensive develo|iment, being one of the most densely populated spots in 
the known world. 

Mof*t of the (lliinese in Canada and the T^nited States come from this

In climate, South China differs f r.- m North China as Florida differs

The imi)ortance of starting this mission was advocated by the Chinese 
in this country, who having heard and accepted the Gospel for themselves 
sent money to pay for a native preacher to their own families. 

In 18i):2 Dr. :ind Mrs. Thomson, who had been missionaries in South 
('hina, onme to work among the Chinese of Montreal. Mrs. Tliomson, in 
spejtking to tlie Montreal Woman's Missionary Society, laid before them 
the urgent and pressing need of more workers in Chinese, dwelling more 
jiarticularly on the South China Mission. Iler appeal bore good fruit. 

In Jii02 our Church appointed the Rev. W, R. MacKay to this field, 
the Chinese in Canada paying a part of his salary. Mr. and Mrs. McKay 
arrived at Macao in October of that year. Two years later the Woman's 
Missionary Society sent two lady missionaries—Miss Dickson and Miss 
Little, M.D. After a yt-ai-'s servit-e Miss Little it-signed from the South 
China work, and a successor was fuund in T*r. Je.-sie McBean.

shared in by all tho missionaries. In some districts there is »till much 
gross darkness and superstition. Kven among Cliristiaiis it i« .litlirult to

the funeral to find that they wore going to "put o«" fire crackers as an 
expression of their Christian joy. Our missionaries led them to see that i?

The "Marion Barclay" Hospital is situated on the waterfront of tha 
busy rivn- hiiihwuy. It is ;i two-storey liuil.linx, can ar,onimo.late fortyfl»« 
patients, and is fur both men and wniiien. 

Or. MeDonald has his own staff for the inni *» siiie of the hospital. In 
the eentre of the buildiiift there is h dispensary, ti i-hnpol, and an operating 
rooiH. The woman's staff at the liexinninK of 1917 .•omprised; Dr. MacBcan, 
the native house surgeon, and the head nurse, Miss HhcHrer, a graduate of 
the Kinjistoii hospital, three senior and four Junior nurses. The head nurse 
was the first to reieive ii diploniu, as the others KOt married before SnishinK. 
Her name is Hi Oi^ and she is now married to a eountrvman in New York, 
where she will make lier home. They had a very pre'ttv wedding in the 
hospital. The bride wore a gown of' white satin beautifullv embroidered. 
The bridal chair was Dr. .MaeBean's own sedan chair covered with natural 
flowers. With the new nurses' home, and such a staff of workers, l>r. Mac- 
Bean feels they lire well ecuiipped. 

The evaiiselistic aim of the hos|.ital is made prominent. Services are 
held daily, and the Bible woman is always present teaching the gospel to 
the patients and their friends while they wait their turn in the dispensary. 
They are all anxious 'o listen to the storv of Jesus, and many purchase 
copies of the Moripturo to read for themselves. 

One incident will show the comfort and coiilideoee that the knowledge of 
the truth brought to a patient who had come a long distance to the 
hospital. .She was lu a terrible condition, and absolutely Ignorant of Ood. 
()n entering she had to undergo a minor 0|ierBtion which so terrified her 
tliat she hiid to be given stimulation. I^ater a verv serious operation was 
necessary, and to the suriirise of doctors and nurses she showed no sign of 
fear. Just before going to the operating table she testified tliu> the grace 
of Hod was ' jeping her calm and confident. There was verv little hope 
of her rceovery, but her faith was rewarded with complete healing, and 
she returned to her home to make known the truth to others. 

No one who professes to accept Christ's commission, "(io disciple all 
nations," can for a moment doubt the great value of the work that is 
being carried forward in South China. We must do more personal work in 
enlisting the interest of a larger number of our women iu the splendid work 
our n,.sHioimries are doing. 

We are positive that there are many, ninnv ministries rendered by them 
tiat they cannot recount to others, and with the dense |iopulutian all about 
them neediug the Bread of Life and in darkness needing the Light; 
Can we whose souls are lighted 

With wisdom from on high, 
Can we to men lieuighted 
The Lamp of Life denyj 
Let us encourage ttleiii with our prayers and joyous sup|,ort.

In preparing our little booklet on Formosa, I will just give some inci- 
dents from our letters and reports in the missiouaries ' own words: 

Miss Clazie writes: "Another year ha.s passed with its joys and sor 
rows, its hopes and fears, its opportunities improved or otherwise,' and at its

She is now quite indispensable to the school. 

"In November the whool was favored with ii visit u-td two tlaya' meet- 
iiigs by Mr. Inwood, one of the representatives of thi: Keswick Conference, 
who had bet II invited to couduct conferences in .lap'iu and Korea, and was 
uble to give a few days to Formosa. Many pupils and teachers were greatly 
helped in their Christian life, and others made tin- important d.risiou. " 

Miss Connell tells of the Women's Hchool: "During the vear twenty 
women studied and were iu resideuce. About half of thcst^ were from Christian 
hemee, others had been iuterested during our visits 1o country churches, and 
some had heard the Uospel while taking treatment in the hospitnl and came 
for further teaching. The course of study covers tw> years, hut only a 
few are able to stay for one year. At present we have feur youug women who 
will finish the first year's work in March. We hope the^ will be able to take 
the whole course. They have five hours a week iu New Test.'inient, and four 
in Old Testament, besidi's a Bible class iu church on Sunday afternoons, and 
a women's class on Tuesday afternoons, when the Christian women lake turns 
in leading. Beside tt") Bible study, the more capable ones ««tudy arithmetic, 
Chijese character, Japanese, singing, geography, physiology, writing and 
composition, care of children and the home. In five years ' work in the school 
nearly 100 women have studied, and almost all have learned to read, so that 
they are able to read their Biblea and hymn books. Several .are gone to the 
hospital as nurses, and one is a Bible woman. One is matron of the flirls' 
School, and one of the Women 's School. ' ' 

Miss Elliott tells of the medical work; "Iu the nursing department of 
our medical work, 1910 has been a happy year. Karly in the year one of 
our girls left us to marry a 1916 graduate" of the Theological College. He is 
niw stationed about two hours (by rickshaw, ferry and push car) d:r,t:"', ^-u 
they are very happy in their new work. Miss Shearer, of Kong Moon, visiting 
us at the time. Miss Tait and I spent a week end with them in August. We 
have nine nurses at thia time. Two will graduate in April, but we hope to 
keeji them on for another year. Last February, during the week of special 
services for women in the city, the nurscM helped much by visiting in the 
homes and in managing the large crowds that came to the meetings. Our

Country Work^Mias Gay.- K.ir >onie months we hud endeavored to 
secure rented premises for work in Chou Chwanjf (Jo .Iwang). After munv 
delays and di.-ia|.pointinenta ineident to real estate dealinjis in China, w"e 
•»eemed at last to have found a suitalde place. The rental was fixed; and 
on oiir being given posse^siou the landlord was to receive u cpiarter'a rent. 
So one bright morning our Bible wonmn. a boy sei\aHt and 1, proeeeded to 
our new place of abode. It was very niut;h to our liking, was well located 
iu .1 quiet spot away from the atr.et, had a lar;;e y.ird, a spacious guest 
room, and vwo small rooms for the Bible woman and mvat-lf. Mow I de- 
lighted in the thought of eating in pence and j.rivacy, without the curious 
LTowd gazing upon nie, watching the use of knife and fork! Happy autici- 
pations of enjoying work in theso tine premisen were not to be realized, 
however. Larly in the day the boy lame asking for money. The landlord 
wished the firMt ijuarter's rent. Was it not due ^ Ven, it must be paid be- 
fore the day ended, but not (luite yet, for 1 must tirst know why our 
rooms had not been emptied of the 'andlord's goods. When would every- 
thing be cleared out? The boy retu'iied to tell me that all would be made 
ready. But as the afternoon woro on, the goods still remained— likewise 
the money. On being sent ouee Uiore he brought back word that the laud- 
lord's nephew, a nfUer of beans and millet, had occupied the rooms. The 
furniture and wall decorations were his. Me was residing temporarily in 
another room opening into our yard, and he would depart very soon — in 
ten days or so. Was that not qu'ito satisfactory? But the reply went back 
that such an arrangement would never do. How could we invite women 
to come into the yard while men were passing back and forth transacting

Let me llrst introdin-e yon to a Hindu pupil whose home is in a distant 
pnrt of India. Iler husband is a lawyer, who has lieeii privileged to get bis 
Kdueation at a ( liristiaii eolle;,'.-. and now writes Ii..\. and I..L.H. after his 
name. Into his honn — a home of wealth -laiiie. some six vears a(jo. this 
Kentle. doidle. but illiterate woman as his wife. It was not 'lonj; before the 
husband found that his hopes of happiness were sadlv frustrated l,v her iirnor 
anee and bi(;otry. Iler friends, too. «.re so orthodox in their leli.rion that 
they eonstanfly interfered with her studies, for whieh arrnaKements m'lv made 
hy the husban.l, I'tider this.' eirenmstniires it was decided that it Mas best for 
her to leave her borne, and even her little daiiKhter, for a timi'. and enter a 
school where her studies would not be interrupted, an. I that her uhereabonts 
be kept hidden from her relatives if possible. 

On beiUK jilaced in onr school ee Here asked to lr;„ I. li.T to iva.l and 
write, but above all to teaeli her tu take lier proper plac In the home, an. I to 
develop III her a loviii«. hi'lpfol an.l iii.|..p,.n.b.|it spirit. K.- have a.-.-epfed the 
chaiKo, and so sb.- is l.einj; taM;;ht ea.di .lav, onr ehi.f desiri. bein- that she 

may ac.|nir.. the bijjhest culture of all^-tli.' love of Ibi.l in the I rt ami thi- 

be prepared to be a bli'ssinj; in the lioini' which awaits her 
beiii^r a Hindu, prepares and eats her foo.l ipiite jipart froii 
I.e eonsi.l.Ted .k-llle.l if tou.hed by rhristian hail.ls. 

.V seiond piii.il is a yoniieer ^irl, but one who. a.-.-or.iinjt to fh.' Iliii.b 
custom, was betrothe.l in her youth. Some of her r.dalives have b.^com.' rhris 
tiiiiis. and both hiT linsbnn.l and brother are stii.lviii;,r at the Christian Col 
le^je hi.re, so it was tbonxbt espe.lient for her to iref some teachiiet too Heiii, 
half Hindu she is not in.lined to eat be,d' or mutton vet, but is ur-,..l to .1. 
so by her friends. Thus, aeain, we are e[ven the t.isk of trvin.."to teadi 
ai.d tram a ynnne uii.lis.dpline.l soul, and to lead her .m t.. a saviii" knowl 
ed^'O of .lesus Chrisl. 

Another interesfin;.' pupil is :iii .\ii;j 
been broueht up in a mission nrphnilaec T 
mission orphaii:i;:e at Xeemncii for some 
take up the study of meiliciiie, and so li 

herself for that work, she expects to trv the entrance to the hi'di' school 
examination in April, an.l then to matriculate before beL'innin.. her ine.lii-il 
studies. 

Our latest pupil is a I'arse,. ClirMian. the lirst ..f this das- we have 
had in the sehool. The Tars,',. reli;;inii is so exclusive that no on., who is 

not boru a Parspo can be, .u me, ami the adherents of this reli.don arc 

ex].eeted to adhere .just as zealously to its ranks. Hero then is an anumolv 
—one who though bearing; their name and belon^iiiit' to their race is vet a 
(.'bristian. May not her presence here intluencc some of our Parsee' dav- 

pupils to make a more strenuous effort to beco , tis she is free in Christ

MaratM School. — Miss Manarey. — Tn the villajjes some women showed 
a ;;oO(i ileal of iiitt'reHf, and linteiied eajjerly to the messnj.'e; others were 
quite content to live tui aw liefore. It is sad to find so many women 
wiio say, "We are iirnorant. ami I.iav shmiM we understand, Oo away." If 
they are even williii;,' to listen to a liyniii one feels that they may jiriinji 
some tliou;;!it wliirli mav luiiiu lijjlit tn them. One woman stopped us on 
our way out of a villa-e, and Msked to ho t<dd the way of salvation. On 
inakinji anotlier visit to lier vilhiye, we did not find lier, and think slie wont 
away bee a use jdajrue liad reached tlie"e. Miss li()liertson and I often 
t!0 out to a vil!a>.'e on Snndny niori.iii;;^. One day Miss Hobertsun intro- 
duced me to an elderly wnniaii, w lio is \ ery friendly, and can read. Any 
time we -io to tlio villa.^e slic taiii's u> to lier home and gathers sdme of 
iier friends about and tliey listen attentively. 

On aeeount of |da::ue the siiniol was only open 117 days. The annual 
distribution of j-ift^i was held this >ear in April. Such times are dear to 
the hearts of tlie children, and are the iiii-asion for the display nf their best 
attiro. Jt was really ania/inj,^ the nnunnit one small girl was able to don — 
necklets, armlets, braielets, anklets, hair ornaments, and a gaily embroi- 
dered sarie. 8he was the daughter ol* a wealthy Ilrahman. After' the gifts 
were distriluited sweets uNo were ;;i\('n. and tlie shatiow of no one, unless it 
be a Brahman, %vas allowed to fall on them.

summary uf the work on which 1 lia\e to repnrt. 

E\an,i,'elislic work among tiie village women I 
throughout the year. Miriambai and liendibai have li 
tiio luttcT gave up her work as a Hible woman to be i 
'J'lie early part of the year was spent tnuring in Nin 

visited f ri HI five centres. In I leremlier we were again on tour, wiili Mr. 
and Mrs. Taylor, wlmni we were delighted to welcome back from furlough. 

Three '-amps were made, and tlie | ph' were perhaps more friendly tlian 

usujil. Still we h:i\e nothing to repoi'l in the way of converaitms. At mir 
last centre, when we liad linished giving the gos|iel messii;:!' to a group of 
('harn;ir men and rtomen, an old man imjuired how Imig it was since .lesus 
had come into the world, as it was only a few years since we had come to 
tell tlicm about llim. When toM it 'was nearly two tiiousand years, he 
rentarliCi], "Since all those years have passed withi.ut our being told of 
Him, 1 ihiuk we had better continue Jis we have been," and his tone dis- 
tinctly implied that we evidently did m-t consider it a matter of supreme 
importance. 

The Hible study classes for woinci, which have been held in the dif- 
ferent stations the hist two vears, I \\a^ !,)ile to hold onlv in Kliarua this 
vear. (■oniici! having asked n'le to take charge of the clashes for the wives 
of the students in the Theological Seminary, Indore, which Mrs. Wilson, 
ow ing t" ill health, was no lunger able to carry on. These classes have 
been carried on for the two terms of the Seminary. We began with six 
women, and at the dune of the second term there were eleven in attendance. 
With the cares of a household, anil in most cases a little family to h)ok 
after, tiie women naturally were not aide to give undivided attention to 
their studies. Still, there was much to encnnragc. Such subject.s were 
taught as we hope will be useful to them in the coming days, eni|)liasis 
being placed on the study of the Bible. Many of these women will go out 
to live in villages where they and their husbands will be the only witnesses

Four Hundred Villages Visited 

Orier.— Durine the eanipiiig season Inn villages were visited, la 
we were, as usual, well reeeived in some villages, and wishe.l 

have .stnye.l long enough to lieeoine thoronghlv a.-i|Uaiiite.| wita 
e who so often are afrtiid of us the first time; 'in others we were 
ed to do any work at all. In one phi. a' where the people knew 
nnd so had no reason to lie afraid, they w.mhl net sell us milk or 

e\eii give their ox .-iirts on hire when we wished to leave the 

m villagers, espeeially the women, are a.lepta ia the art of showing 
indilferenee an.l simply ignoring you, if thev do not want to 
you. This attitude of aloofness is very hard to put up with.

( travelled some inilofl over a rough road ii iir.ier to 

-... "tlie fri-ii.t tidiii';-* of jireat joy." When the Rev. F, .1. Amlersmi 

went on \cn\v he lent nie his ffriimaphone for use in Ilic work. Thiji has 
|tn)ved to he ii jr'iod "drawinjf curd," iis nil Indian pe(i|ile liki' riiusic, and 
viMnye iiumi iiud Ixivs will sit for hours in the eveniri- li«tei)i'n.' t'> the 
ninsir, whifh \n intersi-ersed with j,'0Hi>el talks. 

Miss Drummond.— This in the first time sinee I came to Indju that we 
hiid In irivc n]> wdrk in rj.jaiii (.'ity Itecuuse of |tiajrue, Tlif si!i-i.jI tin the 
i'oni|)ound has, Imwever, ^'one on. The aehoo! uri<ler the -iirfpensary 
tms hcen open tlie jTreater piirt of the year with it yood uttfu-ianee. 
Two ti'at-hers wire nii-cs'ary nio.it of the time. It was disnpjHunting to 
have to I'hisc the wi-hool because of plaj^ue. Tlie (iiatrkt aroiiud tho dis- 
pensnry was tlie tiist infected, and the pareuta were afraid to send their 
cliildren. When the State scliool« <'losed there was no hope of Keepinjf ours 
open. 

On account of the decreased attendance at the school in the Mili district 
ill -hny, the blackboard and box of }iooks were transferred to a room in 
another street. Most of the people are of a liij;lier caste than th..s.' ;iround 
rlie mill. They are weavers, and make beautiful sarliis ( (ihU.hi WKiiian 'h 
ihess) with silk borders. We had between fifteen and twenty very bri^-lit 
little boys atteiidinjr at first, and the school promised to be anexeej titJially 
(;ood (»ne. A disappointment was in store for us, however, whfi. .ifter a 
\isit to the M(diullah by one uf tin- teachers in an Aryan Sam;i-. the at- 
tendance bejjan to decrease. 

-Inst what Halwant Sintzli told the peoj.le we do not know, l.Tit after 
his visit we did not lia\e so many chiiilren. and when the callini.' woman 
went for the- they told her they did not want to j:u to a Chrislian .school. 
I kept the school open for a time, but had to elosr fur a Hindu festival. 
Not lony after that pia-.'ue broke out in the city, aud last Sunday we were 
fold that one of the bovs who used to attend school had the dreaded 
ilisea-e. 

\\hrrc «e ha.l day schools we have h;».l Sunday 
About se\enty-ii\e children jrathered for theiV 
;iy, and each received his, or her, share of Indian 
sweets in a little vessel m;nie nf leaves. Each portion jiassed directly trom 
the hands of the maker to tlie children. For us to !i:ne touched it w„uld 
have ilefiled it, and the children would not have been allowed to eat it. 

I have not been able to do as much zenana work in the city us I 
[.liouM have liked to have done. Last year I told about I'andela Ramabai "b 
relatives li\in<,' in Ij.iain, and about Matliurbai, the widow in whom I am 
much intere8te<l. The latter is now in h'auiahai's home in Mukti, and some 
mimths ajio i received a lettoi' from one of the missionaries there telling 
me she had broken caste and askiii;,' me to pray lor her. For a. Brahmin 
woman to break her caste means much, and 1 feci sure Matliurbia must be 
very interested in Cliriatiaiiity to take sui.'h a step. I prav it will not be 
Ion;; till she acei-t- Christ as her Saviour if she has m.T alreadv don- bo.
